It’s time for Molecular and Cellular biologists everywhere to have their own Blog Carnival!
Blog Carnivals group together and present a number of links pointing to blog articles on a particular topic. The selection of blog posts is made by Carnival Hosts and the picks are posted on their own blogs accompanied by a brief commentary. Blog Carnivals provide wide exposure to the highlighted posts and are a great way of finding new interesting blogs.
A joint effort between 5 science bloggers, including LabRat, Lucas Brouwers, Alexander Knoll, Psi Wavefunction and myself, has resulted in the creation of The MolBio Carnival, which will focus on cellular and molecular biology in different systems.
The MolBio Carnival will be published on the first Monday of every month.
We encourage the submission of posts discussing peer-review articles, techniques, books and related topics. Specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to: structure and function of proteins, nucleic acids and other macromolecules, gene expression and its regulation, signal transduction, apoptosis, developmental biology, cell cycle and cell growth, microbiology, biochemistry, structural biology, membrane dynamics and many others. Systems and synthetic biology-related posts are also welcomed.
How to submit
Submitting your best posts to the carnival is easy and can be done in several ways. You can use the online submission form available here (preferred method) or you can contact the host of an upcoming edition directly including a link to your post. Future hosts will be listed on the carnival's home page.
We look forward to receiving your contributions to this long-awaited carnival and if you’d like to host it in the near future, do not hesitate to contact any of us.
